This chapter describes the process of discovering network devices and ports, and then adding them to the Orion Platform database.

Adding devices in SolarWinds UDT is a two-step process. First you add network devices to monitor, and then you add the ports on those devices to monitor.

Add devices

These are the ways to add devices in SolarWinds UDT:

The method recommended largely depends on the number of devices to be added. When you install and run SolarWinds UDT for the first time, you will be taken to the Network Sonar Discovery Wizard.

With the release of UTD 3.3, highly secure Cisco ASA devices can now be monitored. For instructions see the knowledge base article, Use UDT to poll Cisco ASA devices.

Add Ports

After you have discovered network devices, you use Discover my ports option in Discovery Central to discover and add ports to SolarWinds UDT.
